I am running for mayor because after 14-years on the city council I believe I have the skills required by the citizens of Santee.  I have the ability to lead the city into its next generation of prosperity, smart growth and potential.

I have lived in Santee since 1992 and have been involved in my local neighborhood and at several levels of the community.  I have experience where it’s needed and the citizens of Santee will benefit from my vast areas of knowledge at local, state and federal levels.

I will continue to work tirelessly to keep Santee one of the safest cities in San Diego County; I will continue to improve traffic conditions; I am available to all citizens of Santee; and I promise to hold myself to the highest level of integrity required of the Office of the Mayor of Santee.

Question 2        My vision for the Office Of Mayor.

Santee is a city rich in history and tradition.  We are a community who shares a common vision.  I want our city to be affordable, to provide opportunities for all, for residents to be able to raise their families comfortably, and for everybody to enjoy all Santee has to offer.

The mayor is a member of the council who provides leadership, promotes positive relationships and models good governance.  The mayor helps the city council and city staff accomplish the goals of the city and it residents.

The mayor fosters actions that create jobs, supports education, reduce crime, improve traffic, repair streets and sidewalks and enhances the overall well-being of the city and its residents

As mayor, I will encourage an innovative team, hold government accountable and focus on common goals.

Question 3        My top three priorities.

101_2006My top three priorities in Santee are 1) the maintenance of our streets, 2) a senior center, and 3) a new library.

I have responded to several citizen requests regarding potholes on residential streets.  At my direction, more than 3,000 pounds of asphalt has been laid.  Additionally, I voted to set aside $6 million for street resurfacing projects throughout the city.

For many years, seniors have been promised a center where they can network and connect.  It’s time to live up to that promise.

Santee needs a new library.  Let’s build a place that is on the cutting edge of technology and provides adults and kids alike with an arena for learning.
